John Logan's
I'll Eat You Last
A Chat with Sue Mengers

Don Stephenson, Director

John Coyne, Set Designer
Gregory A. Poplyk, Costume Designer
John Lasiter, Lighting Designer
Hunter Spoede & Michael Miceli, Sound Designers

Oozing equal parts charm and ferocity, and sparkling in a glitter-trimmed caftan designed by Gregory A. Poplyk, Karen Murphy slips easily into the character’s outsize personality.   

 - New York Times

John Coyne’s Hollywood Hills set offers lots of playing area, but Murphy as Mengers remains seated, sprawled, and languishing on a sofa centerstage, in a caftan designed by Gregory A. Poplyk similar to those worn by the “zaftig” Mengers. John Lasiter’s lighting and the sound design of Michael Miceli and Hunter Spoede is solid.
